A New Bug out Vehicle

Post by Citizen H » Mon Apr 23, 2018 2:27 pm

So that your all up to speed.......



The Current Bug Out Vehicle “Soviet Joseph” was replaced by a fairly new Vauxhall Combi van, that I wasn't allowed to touch...... :(

It served us well through out the snowy weather and was practical and in-practical at the same time !?!?!?

So it was decided that it had to go..... after much sulking and dragging of heels its now gone! :cry: on a plus note the new owners want it for a work van and promised that it wouldn't stay in such good condition for very long :evil:

months have gone by and arguments have come and gone. I was holding out for Land Rover an ex military Nato green project type of thing........But No Chance!!!!!!! Not Having It!

so... I started quizzing her about an SUV.... as long as its not a shyter, diesel, Land Rover or Nato Green, we may be good to go.... Aha!

Well fellas I've kinda Got my own way on this occasion :D :D :D

I'll be posting photos Of my new "Bug Out Vehicle" as soon as I can get my stuff together.

Nah! she wont be having any of it, looks to Industrial and as were on a tight budget its got to be smallish CC, No V5-V8 or even 2ltr's allowed this time :shock:

I'm pleased with what's we've got and its got very good reviews, Pics coming shortly,

If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

Nice one. Bought a 10-year old Roomster last year and very happy with it, but would have liked the Yeti a bit more. Let us know how it goes.

Really lucky to find this one locally and V rare to see them being sold privately, I have joined the Skoda Yeti Forum (another one!) and their very helpful bunch, within 2 minutes of joining I was sent a PM with a print out of the fuse box and what rating sit where and what each fuse covers.... my first thought was oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit, what have I done, but then its was pointed out its not in the handbook and may come in use one day,

no recalls on my model and as its a Low mileage, full Skoda service, 1 careful owner purchase I'm confident it was a good buy. one thing I did note was its got these sun shades rather than tinted windows, I'm in mind to get a spare set and cover with skrim net to match the new Nato Olive Green, HEHEHHHEHEHEHHEHEHHE :lol: :evil:
